This kid is growing up by leaps and bounds every day. Henry went from walking slowly to drifting endlessly around the living room within 10 days. He’s a confident, growing guy.
If you watch him push around
his cars and trucks, listen to his revving noises, or observe him as he
finds joy in roughly chucking toys and blocks about, you’ll immediately
recognize that he is very much a boy. With this in mind we had to trim
away his curls and give him a more manly haircut. He doesn’t need a high
and tight, but he does need to pull it together a bit.
time on Sunday we did the deed. Becky carefully isolated the longest
curls in the back, made the quick, permanent snip, and solemnly placed
them on a paper towel where they could dry before finding their way into
the baby book. I jumped in at the end to pick out a few stray clumps,
and we pronounced Henry done.
Mom is a little sad as our baby takes a
very visual step forward. He may still be a baby, but he’s looking more
and more like a little dude these days.
